Everyone wants to have great abs. Abs that look lean and tight can be an attractive feature on anyone’s body. But, as important as it is to have good abs for appearance, everyone needs good abs for the well being of their body.
Strong abs help prevent and minimize lower back injuries and pain and help us maintain good posture. And, strong abs provide stability for the body by strengthening your body’s core.
Core stabilization is essential for all sport and outdoor activities and for being able to perform activities of daily living and increasing basic functionality. Think of the core of your body as the connector between your upper body and your lower body. The stronger the connection, the better the foundation you provide your body.
To get the most out of your ab work, you won’t need any fancy devices or machines advertised in infomercials. If that ab rocker or ab roller will get you out of the chair and on the floor to exercise your abs then maybe it’s worth the money but the floor work you can do without these aids is actually better for developing the abs.
Ab exercises focus mainly on two areas: the rectus abdominus or the muscle in the front of your body, and the obliques or the muscles on the sides of your body.
